OREGON – The Serenity Shed announced it will become a distributor for Dixie Belle Paints.
These extraordinary paints take all the hard work out of refurbishing and painting projects because they do not require you to do all of the sanding, scraping and priming. They allow you to focus on the fun parts of the project.
The Shed will be offering a free demonstration on Jan. 4 from 10:30 a.m.to 12:30 p.m. to show you exactly how these paints work and to give you some inspiration for your New Year’s projects. You will see actual items being refurbished and have an opportunity to ask questions about your own projects. Even if you are not interested in refurbishing but just have an interest in these special techniques, we invite you to come and bring a friend.
“During a particularly difficult time in my personal life, I started refurbishing furniture as my therapy,” said Suzanne Fulford, the founder of Dixie Belle Paint Company. “I hated the sanding, scraping and priming part of the refurbishing, just took too much time. That’s when I heard of a type of paint that did away with all those miserable steps. I tried to purchase some but it was crazy expensive. That was when I decided to come up with my own recipe that was more cost-effective. Voila … Dixie Belle was born.”
Since introducing Dixie Belle paints into their workroom, the volunteers at The Shed have had fun exploring the many techniques possible when using these special products. Mark your calendars and get your new year off to a creative start. The Serenity Shed, which supports Serenity Hospice, is a crafting workshop open to the public and located at 131 N. 3rd St. in downtown Oregon.
